Antibiotic Drugs For GO.?
Good night. a few days ago I had gonorrhea / splash. I went to the pharmacy and consulted a doctor there, I was given medicine of Ofloaxacin, sanmol paracetamol and siclidon doxycyline. the doctor said my gonorrhea would stop within 1 day after I took the drug. and continues until the medicine that the doctor gave must be drunk. in fact after 1 week I took the drug and the medicine ran out. My gonorrhea did not stop and because I was constrained by funds I could no longer go to the doctor’s dispensary. My question is whether the medicine given by the doctor is really an antibiotic drug and whether my disease has entered the final stage until it cannot be treated anymore. N nThank you
Gonorrhea is different from syphilis. Gonorrhea is a layman's term for gonorrhea (GO). Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease caused by infection with the bacteria N gonorrhoeae. GO causes several complaints such as abnormal discharge or pus from the penis or vagina, inflammation and swelling of the foreskin, pain in the testicles, lower abdominal pain, inflammation of the vagina, and bleeding after sex.
Examination to confirm GO is by history / interview, physical examination, and supporting examinations with penile fluid tests and urine tests if necessary. After determining the cause of GO, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment with antibiotics, it can also be an oral injection. In addition to antibiotics, doctors can also provide additional treatment to reduce symptoms, for example with pain relief.
The medicine given by your doctor ofloxacin is an antibiotic that works to treat bacterial infections, including sexually transmitted infections. Doxycycline is an antibiotic to treat bacterial infections, including sexually transmitted infections. Meanwhile, paracetamol is an anti-pain and antipyretic.
Did you have sex again during treatment? When undergoing GO treatment, you should not have intercourse first, and your partner should also be given medication to prevent recurrent infections. Intimate relations can be done after both of them are completely cured of GO. Henceforth, you should avoid intimate intercourse between partners and use condoms when having sex to prevent GO.
I suggest that you take control to the doctor 2 weeks after starting treatment so that you can evaluate your condition. If it is not finished, the doctor will provide maximum further treatment.
For now, try drinking more water, don't hold pee, and postpone intercourse first.
